The Naked And Famous are set to release a new album, 'In Rolling Waves' via Fiction Records (Universal) on September 16th, 2013
The video for 'Hearts Like Ours' was directed by Campbell Hooper in Los Angeles and New Zealand. Imagine a modern fashion film dragged through the mind of David Lynch, a hive of haunting imagery, of fleeting familiarity dotted amongst strange obscurity. The video is as unique and arresting as the previous collaborations between these two artists.
For 'In Rolling Waves' Joel Kefali has created some beautiful album artwork with a series of flowers at its core - the album cover features a deconstructed Ananome. "The record feels large, expansive and eternal. I wanted to convey this through an object that is physically small but feels large." said Kefali. Special edition releases will include heavy weight vinyl and limited edition CD release in a clam shell box with 12 art cards.
Produced by singer Thom Powers and keyboardist Aaron Short, new album 'In Rolling Waves' is the band's follow-up to their award-winning, internationally-acclaimed debut album 'Passive Me, Aggressive You'. Written at their home in Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles, 'In Rolling Waves' also credits Justin Meldal-Johnsen (M83, Beck and NIN) with co-production and was mixed by Alan Moulder at his Assault and Battery Studio in London.
'In Rolling Waves' follows the band's widely lauded debut 'Passive Me, Aggressive You' (2011). The half-million selling debut spawned the international hit 'Young Blood'. 'Young Blood' was a Gold Record in the US and Canada, and Platinum in New Zealand and Australia with over 35 million YouTube and Vevo views.
In 2012, after two years of almost constant touring, the New Zealand five-piece set up home in Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles to begin work on the twelve track album.
Produced by singer Thom Powers and keyboardist Aaron Short, 'In Rolling Waves' also credits Justin Meldal-Johnsen (M83, Beck and NIN) with co-production on two tracks. Alan Moulder mixed 'In Rolling Waves' at his Assault and Battery Studio in London.
The band will commence a North American tour in late September before heading to Europe and arriving in the UK late November.
